If we want a change. We make a trade for a player like Bobby Ryan.
IMO, as someone who watches every Ducks game, I absolutely HATE the idea of building around Bobby Ryan. My diehard Ducks fan friend and I were talking about this very thing today, as he thinks Ryan will definitely be dealt before next season. I have rarely seen a player put up more points that seemingly has no actual impact on games. He has never shown an ability to carry that Ducks team the way that Getzlaf, Perry, and even Teemu have for stretches, and he is going to be dealt for a boatload, as some GM is going to think he's an 80-100 point centerpiece guy.

I love him as a complimentary winger (i.e. Jeff Carter), but I would hate to see Poile overpay for him. I just don't think he's capable of being THE guy offensively. A few highlight goals here and there, and consistent numbers, but not a focal point.
